What People Are Saying

  • With His Playful Musical Style And Cozy, Comfortable Approach, It's No Wonder Kids (And Parents) Love Rockin' With Andy!
    Just a couple of years ago, Andrew Baum would never have imagined himself spending his days making music for children and their families. Today, he can't imagine doing anything else. Baum, known to his pint-sized fans as Andy - as in Rockin' With Andy - travels throughout New York City and the tri-state area with his guitar, bringing friends and families together through fun, lighthearted music at playgroups and birthday parties.

  • Although Andy plays at Big City Moms events and is a favorite at birthday parties around town, the best way to combine time with your mommy friends and music for baby is to get your own Rockin' with Andy playgroup together. Andy comes to your apartment with a suitcase full of musical props and puppets for your kids to shake, rattle and roll with.

  • Big City Moms LOVES Rockin With Andy! (and so does my daughter Sami!) He knows just how to get the crowd going...and the adults enjoy him too! It's obvious that Andy loves what he does....Putting smiles on children's faces and introducing them to music with fun toys and great tunes. Rockin with Andy is always a blast!

  • Andy is one of the most talented musicians I know. His repertoire is vast, and his energy for sharing music is warm, engaging and sophisticated, he meets children at a level of respect. He sings from the heart and inspires you to join him!

  • I was in a Rockin' with Andy playgroup for over a year and it was my favorite activity of the week. Andy's musical mix of adult and kid friendly faves guaranteed a good time for all. The kids had a blast dancing and playing with the props he provides and the moms got to chat - what more could you ask for from a mommy & me activity?

  • Hi Andy,

    I wanted to send you a picture of my kids in their favorite t-shirt! It's their favorite shirt and I really believe it's because they associate it with all of your great classes. They also love music and I am so happy they they got into it as early as they did. Thanks for everything you do.

    Warm Regards,
